In December of 2014, my sister Trish Damron, a loving mother, daughter, wife, sister, aunt and friend was diagnosed with stage 4 inoperable cancer. They advised it was colon cancer that had already spread to the liver and the lungs. She started chemo, which was her only treatment option in January 2015 and has been on chemo ever since. She has failed the two and only treatment protocols and the cancer has since spread to the peritoneum and the bone.
Trish has been an inspiration to all of those around her. Her faith is irrefutable! Her will to live and fight this awful disease has been nothing short of amazing, despite all the horrific side affects of the chemo!
Unfortunately there are no other treatment options available to her in the United States (other than what amounts to a clinical trial of chemo which will continue to harm her!) I am raising this money to get Trish to a German Cancer Center (ASAP) where they perform Whole Body Hyperthermia. I intend on accompanying her so she isn't alone, but most treatment centers allow a companion to stay with the patient at no extra cost. I have done hours of research on Whole Body Hyperthermia and believe this is what Trish needs! Please read about it yourself. It's amazing and unfortunate that it is not performed in the United States.
I fear without this treatment I will lose my sister before it's her time. Additionally, I'm extremely worried about, and scared for my two neices. Their mother means EVERYTHING to them!! I'm sure everyone reading this realizes how devastating it would be for a young girl to lose her Mother.
Thank you for taking the time to read my sisters story. Any donation amount is greatly appreciated and will go to saving a life.
